Were we to be stood in the tap room of the 'Dog & Handgun' (oldschool comedy reference there...), my response would be somewhat different. However as we're all on a family friendly forum, I'll just say that I'm fancying holidaying in Italy next year...

Whilst on the topic of summer hols, here's a pic of me flinging my Xeno off the hill in Fiss (Austria) at this year's 'Flying Circus'. I truly HATE this aeroplane but when the wind decided not to cooperate, I was thankfull I packed it....

Austria has to be one of the most beautiful countries I've had the priviledge to visit and a slope soarer's paradise. To that end, already planning return trip with more alpine suitable 'ammo'

I'm guessing the ski lifts/cable cars make it a little more enjoyable....

Oh yeah - done of this trudging up hills mallarkey - just hop on a cable car. From hotel to that flying site - 5mins walk across meadow (piste in winter), ride cable car for 5mins and saunter across another meadow. All good! Oh, and zoom back for afternoon snacks

I wonder if the Redkites will do as well when culling badgers is legal.

Sounds pleasant, has to be a catch? Cost of a beer maybe, and the food...?

I'll put together a little album and write up when I have a spare mo (and am back at base) but as for video - sorry, didn't take any. What I can say is that taking a 5' long Peli case on public transport half way across Europe was an adventure in itself... But that's a story for another time

No, not too bad. Remember this Austria, not Switzerland. Also the hotel was virtually full board. The 'afternoon snacks' were in reality meals

Lightweight! Try getting 25 windsurfing boards assorted rigs (about50) and a scaffolding tower across the Sinai, onto a plane and back to blights on your own…
And my normal load for travelling the caribbean was a double board bag and rig bag plus camera bags and luggage. I've done a lot of miles on the roofs of minibuses as they didn't have enough rope to tie the load on…
